After hard winter (OK, winter is not completely over, boat is still surrounded by snow and sea frozen...) the project continues. This spring I am going to focus to interior.
First is to replace upholstery for the mattresses. Also plywood base are going to be replaced. The originals have some mildew / smell.

Pictures of original interior, work begins and new plywood parts.

Result of 1st day of tailoring: 3 mattresses done, 5 to go. Fabric is from Sunbrella. Mattresses are actually each from 2 pieces: front part is a bit thicker than the other one. Welting strap done in between. Next is going to be the back rest parts. There will be aditional trick done for those parts...hint can be found from the cockpit pictures...

Work will be stopped for a while after tomorrow, need to go to Paris for few days. :cool:

haha launch is soon! That pic is from 2007, I just thought it was time for a change :)

Where did you get those LED's? I really like that and I want to do some accent lighting in the cabin of the new boat.

Well, I can tell you where I bought the led's, but that might not help you much unless you are visiting northern Finland :D
Here they sell those in most hardware stores and car accessory shops. Stripes are actually very handy. They come with few different lengths, but you can just cut the exact length needed (cutting marks in every 2 inches).

Cabin upholstery done ! Pictures before and after.

Next indoor improvement is removal of wallpapers from toilet walls and door. Seems that under the ugly wallpaper there is beautiful shiny white wall. Might be however that they get new coating...

Hi Hannu,

Great job you have done on your improvements.

I have been looking for the screws that hold the side panel on (where the shifter is) and I cannot find them on my 2355. Apparently they are well hidden in the seems but I cannot find any of them. Any chance you could point out where yours are?

Thanks Kent,

The nut's hoding side panel on my '94 2355 are behind the panel. To access them you need to open hatch on the ceiling of the center cabin. Also one nut is located in the engine room. I had to remove fresh water tank to be able to access it. They are really not easily accessible. Unfortunately I need to remove the panel again soon, since I am waiting for Teleflex shifter, I ordered from US.

OK, so the nuts are behind the panel. That's a start.

...not sure what you mean by the hatch in the ceiling of the cabin? That is about 6 feet away. I know I don't have access through the side section from the engine room and I think the engine room is too low to give access from behind the water tank but I will take a look tomorrow and report back.

In my 2355 there is large hatch (as wide as the whole cave) in the end of center cabin ceiling just below the cockpit sidepanel.
You found the small hatch that is access to L-seat backrest bolts ?
And yes, one nut can access from engine room side.

haheikkibl, thanks. I found all the bolts exactly where you had said they were. I didn't originally understand what you meant by the "cave" but do now. As I am not a large person, I was able to get my body right up into the side section and had relatively good access to the nuts and everything else that is in there. Now that I have access to that, I won't even need to remove the side panel in order to install the controls for a kicker.

I was also able to contort myself a little and get to the nut in the engine room without taking out the fresh water tank.

Thanks a bunch. Things will be much easier now! Happy cruising.

:)

Progress update: As I was warned before and confirmed by the heater dealer, the kerosene heater was not supposed to be installed in the (gasoline) engine compartment. The previous owned had done so but now it is changed. Moved it to the head. I had to raise the table to by 5 inches to fit heater and kerosene tank into it. Made also hole to acces the tank. I still need to drill another hole for a grill to enable better air circulation for cooling.

Crappy Quicksilver 3000 removed and replaced by Teleflex 1751. Much smoother and accurate to use. Fits directly to original cables and wires matching bayliner color coding - easy installation. I added standard push button for trailer switch. The button was not included in 1752 kit.

Also, wouldn't it be a little gentler on the gelcoat if that bow stop had some rubber or vinyl or something soft a cushy on it?:(
Nice looking boat by the way.
Oh ya, had a bit of a tough time figuring out where they have the fancy steering wheels on your web site too.:confused:

I was going to say same thing about trailer ! I had to do the double take :cool Ive just upgraded all the suspension on my 2355 and am allowing for 3.5 ton which pusshing the twin 45mm axles I have under there at the moment. I cant imagine a singe axle that could hold that much weight ?
